These pips are made for speed as the name would indicate. Be prepared to play at a fast pace as it's hard to put the brakes on these pips. Opening and rolling is fairly easy. Blocking is as good as any pips I have tried. I did not really see that they are very deceptive, at least not in maximum thickness.

i have used different king of Spectol pips, but i always end up using this one. The fastest in the spectol family with some deception when hitting is done correctly. Superb quality.
i can recommend it everyday for play, but be warned that it takes some time to get used to its characteristic..

Great rubber for off the bounce hitting and blocking from close to the table. The medium hard sponge means you can use thinner and still have plenty of power. I understand that this is the version used by top players. Be prepared, this is a very high performance rubber, especially on a fast blade.
